Three Ways That Students Can Create Talking Pictures A couple of days ago on Twitter someone asked me for suggestions for tools that work like Blabberize to let people create talking pictures.

To do this on Blabberize you first upload a picture then draw or select a mouth on the people or animals in it. Irresistible: U.S. Politics on Film – Speakeasy News As the race to the White House is about to resume after the pandemic , Jon Stewart’s latest movie — released on 1 July in France — takes you behind the scenes to help you decipher a political campaign. Setting the movie in Wisconsin, and using (wry) humour, Stewart wants people to realise politics is sometimes more a matter of money and media than a matter of ideas. Rivalry, strategy and stereotypes are exposed. The following activities will help the students get a glimpse of U.S. politics and get ready for the oncoming presidential elections (which may well be about money and media!). Additional information can be found on social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for those who want to focus on a particular aspect or line of the movie. We will provide a specific resource on this year’s Presidential election in September, once the party conventions have finally been held.

The Seven Best Short Animated Films for the Language Classroom - Kieran Donaghy Animated films are ones in which individual drawings, paintings, or illustrations are photographed frame by frame. Traditionally animated films have been associated with children, however, nowadays they are designed to appeal to everyone. With the increased ease of creating animations, there has been a huge rise in the number of animated films being produced, and the vast majority of these are short animations.

Here are my seven favourite animated short films for the language classroom.
